In 2016, Bowen State High School will be introducing an ASDAN class for selected students in Year 10. Students will be enrolled in the ASDAN class instead of their regular SOSE subject.

The ASDAN program is an accredited QCAA program that gives students the opportunity to gain QCE points in Year 10 by completing a Bronze and Silver level certification. The Bronze certification is worth 1 QCE point and the Silver certification is worth 2 QCE points.

The program is designed for students who have been identified through Year 9 as either, struggling academically in a number of subjects or at risk of disengagement from school.

Students will be required to meet certain challenges throughout the program, gathering evidence for a portfolio of work.

Challenges completed assist students in developing the following key skills of the course:

·      Improving own learning and performance

·      Working with others

·      Problem Solving

·      Communication

·      Application of Number

·      ICT

To receive a Bronze level certification, students must complete six modules. To receive a Silver level certification, students must complete twelve modules. Each module should take approximately 10 hours of class time. It is anticipated that all students in the program will receive their Silver certification by the end of Year 10. Therefore, they would have banked 2 QCE points.

To be successful in the program, high attendance at school is extremely important.
